I'M ABSOLUTELY NOT KIDDING, I DID SEE THEM

I was out walking the other day when I heard a tremendous flapping noise. I turned in time to see these two large birds land just over my shoulder. I grabbed my camera and quickly took a picture of them. The one on the left was more than a little perturbed. I'm not sure what kind of birds they are but this I know for sure, they are from Sweden. Perhaps Steffe or Stromsjo might have more insight. Please click on the image to enlarge and get the full SKYWATCH effect.

  2. What a fun post! Thanks for evening smiles.
    And, I loved you thought my Lazing on a Sunday afternoon should be groovin - that made me smile and brought back memories. I'll be singing that the rest of the evening.

  38. Geez, the things they'd do for marketing... I could mention a thing or two I'd rather have my country associated with but, alas, one does not get to choose.

    Well snapped!
